MENU PLAN MONDAY: FOR THE WEEK OF MARCH 9 & I AM CHALLENGING YOU!!!

After my last trip to Kroger, I wanted to reorganize everything in my fridge/freezer/pantry, and get my menu planned for the week of March 9 so I could participate inMENU PLAN MONDAY. Well, that's all I had planned on doing anyway. After rearranging everything, and taking inventory, I realized that we really don't need or have room for any more food right now. (Although, I did stock up on the Sargento cheese deal at Kroger yesterday) So I got out our menu binder and our MASTER MEAL PLAN and made out our menu plan for the rest of March using what we already had. We usually only plan a week at a time, so this was quite the challenge. (we will still have to buy the "have to have it fresh" items...milk,lettuce,fruit,etc.) This is what we came up with:

  • MARCH 9: CHICKEN ENCHILADA'S, REFRIED BEANS, AND MEXICAN STYLE RICE (this meal was delicious!!!)
  • MARCH 10: STUFFED PEPPERS AND MAC & CHEESE
  • MARCH 11: CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
  • MARCH12: HOT DOGS & SAUERKRAUT, MASHED POTATOES
  • MARCH13: SLOPPY JOE'S, COLE SLAW, FRENCH FRIES/ONION RINGS
  • MARCH 14: SKILLET CABBAGE & SAUSAGE
  • MARCH 15: MEATLOAF, GREEN BEANS & POTATOES IN A ROSEMARY BUTTER SAUCE, AND HOMEMADE ROLLS (REMIND ME TO POST ABOUT THE BEST ROLLS EVER!!!!) That's my menu plan for the week of March 9, that I had every intention of posting by Monday over at MENU PLAN MONDAY. Better late than never I always say :)

    Here's the plan for the rest of the month:


  • MARCH 16: GREAT NORTHERN BEANS, CHEESY HASHBROWN CASSEROLE, COLLARD GREENS, AND CORN MUFFINS
  • MARCH 17: BEEF STROGANOFF, GREEN BEANS, AND SOME MORE OF THOSE DELICIOUS HOMEMADE ROLLS
  • MARCH 18: CHILI
  • MARCH 19: GARLIC AND HERB BREADED FISH, BUTTERED POTATOES, PEAS, ROLLS
  • MARCH 20: CHILI CHEESE DOGS, FRENCH FRIES
  • MARCH 21: BREAKFAST OR COOK'S CHOICE
  • MARCH 22: HUBBY'S GRILLIN' (weather permitting) HAMBURGER'S AND HOT DOG'S, POTATO SALAD, CHIPS
  • MARCH 23: HAMBURGER HELPER NIGHT, GREEN BEANS, SALAD
  • MARCH 24: VEAL PARMESAN OVER SPAGHETTI, SALAD, GARLIC BREAD
  • MARCH 25: BROWN BEANS, FRIED POTATOES, COLLARD GREENS, CORNBREAD
  • MARCH 26: BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN BREASTS IN A MUSHROOM SAUCE, MASHED POTATOES, GREEN BEANS
  • MARCH 27: FISH SANDWICHES, HUSH PUPPIES, FRENCH FRIES/ONION RINGS, COLESLAW
  • MARCH 28: BREAKFAST OR COOK'S CHOICE
  • MARCH 29: HUBBY'S GRILLIN' (weather permitting), GRILLED CHICKEN, POTATO PACKETS
  • MARCH 30: MEXICAN LASAGNA
  • MARCH 31: STUFFED SHELLS, GREEN BEANS, SALAD, GARLIC BREAD

Well, there it is. What do ya' think? I challenge you to get out your meal planning binders and plan your menu for the rest of the month or get a plan together for the month of April your choice, using only what you already have on hand!!! (with the exception of the "fresh" items that you need. Are you up to the challenge?
